What a whirlwind adventure I had! It has taken me two days to sit and write this blog because every time I have tried I teared up. And believe me, this blog is about to be anything but eloquently worded, as I just need to get it out while I can!  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that… MORE

Spaghetti with Broccoli Florets and Traditional Sauce
My sons were starving after swimming all afternoon, so I made this for a quick late-afternoon lunch. At first my seven & nine year olds weren't crazy about the fact that there was broccoli in their spaghetti, but once they tasted it they finished everything on their plates. This is so easy to make and we were all pleasantly surprised by how much we lived the combo. It's a keeper.

How to Make Vanilla Ice Cream
This was absolutely the BEST ice cream I have ever made. (Chef John never lets me down.) I love the simple and few ingredients needed. It tasted just like the ice cream I remember eating as a child from the little ice cream stand in my hometown. Will have to make a double batch tomorrow, this didn't last long!

Baked Ziti with Cheese
As others have stated, this dish is labor intensive. In my opinion, the final outcome wasn't worth all the work, as we thought this meal was just okay. My husband stated that he wished it had meat in it. I did like the flavor combo of the bechamel and red sauces - but because this took so many pans on the stove at the same time, plus the baking dish, I don't think this is something that will make it into our dinner rotation very often. The only change I made was to cover the top in additional cheese layer with the bread crumbs to entice the kids to eat it.
